TOWARDS A NEW SCIENCE OF HEALTH & WELLNESS

There has been much lip service paid recently to mind, body, spirit approaches to health and wellness promotion. Unfortunately, the term holistic is still often viewed as meaning touchy-feely, “New-Age” and unscientific. Science, however, is dynamic – constantly changing; and there have been tremendous changes in science in the last 100 years. Unless our field adapts to the changing science, the efficacy of our interventions will continue to be compromised and we risk becoming an anachronism. This workshop will present an update of our understanding of health, illness, healing and the nature of change based on the latest scientific discoveries in psychoneuroimmunology, quantum physics and chaos theory. Implications for health and wellness promotion will be explored and resources for further educational enrichment will be recommended.
